f you are looking for a quick and easy way to remove the husks and silk from sweet corn – try this technique.
  • Cut about an inch off the bottom of the ears of corn.
  • Then place the ears of corn on a microwavable plate. Cook in the microwave for two to four minutes. This will create enough steam and moisture for the corn to separate from the husk.
  • Take the corn out of the microwave and squeeze the top of the ear. The sweet corn should slide right out. Note: Be careful when sliding the corn out because it may be hot. Use an oven mitt or glove to prevent your hands from burning.
